  All Member Meeting and Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

Our All-Member Meeting and Volunteer Appreciation Dinner is scheduled for Tuesday, August 21, 6 p.m. and it is a potluck. The Board will furnish the main dish and the beverages—punch, water and coffee. Members are asked to bring a dish to share. A slide presentation of the activities and events in the past year will be shown and appreciation given to the volunteers who helped to make these events happen. Plans for the coming year will be revealed. There will also be election of trustees. LeRoi Basinger and Kathleen Pollauf are each seeking another 3-year term.  Linda Apling, Marcia Hayes, and Miriam Patznick are nominated for their first 3-year terms.

Please plan to attend—this is our only meeting during which we conduct business and is a great time to connect and re-connect with all those involved in the Society.
